I made Heather a malteser cake for her birthday and we all partied on her boat and it was magical. I followedthisrecipe from a lovely blog calledpoires au chocolatwhich you should check out. I just made one layer of sponge so it was just white inside like a malteser. Cutting maltesers in half may count as a newly acquired skill, but its probably not c.v-worthy. Heather's boat, however, is seaworthy - how cool is that?
Kneeling in front of someone with a cake looks a lot like a proposal. I propose that you continue to be totally awesome, Happy Birthday!
